DES MOINES, Iowa — Out of dozens of new foods, 10 semifinalists and three finalists, a winner for best new state fair food has been chosen: the chicken egg salad with Indian fry bread.
Fairgoers voted for their favorite item through 11:59 p.m. Monday.
The dish can be found at the Cluckin' Coop by the Iowa Egg Council/Iowa Poultry Association. It combines fry bread with cool chicken and egg salad, which includes celery, cranberries, pecans, cabbage slaw, bacon-tomato aioli, fresh cilantro and smoked paprika.
Local 5's Sabrina Ahmed got to try the creation—and talk about how it came to be—earlier this week.
Local 5 and CW Iowa 23 are bringing exciting experiences to you, from live newscasts to a real-life Local 5 Weather Lab experience. The CW Iowa 23 booth will be located on Grand Avenue, and the Local 5 Weather team can be found near the Giant Slide.
Both booths will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day of the fair.
